Hi! I’m Carolyn.

I’ve been in the “paper business” for a while. After managing a chain of stationery and gift stores in downtown Chicago and owning my brick and mortar specialty boutique in Northbrook, I have now moved on to enthusiastically focus on what I love best – wedding and special event invitations! When I discovered the world of weddings and the impact beautiful details in your paper goods can have, I was hooked. I’ve been creating and designing ever since.

We proudly support marriage equality and believe that people should marry the one they love. Quintessence represents some of the top vendors in the industry, as well as offering completely custom designed pieces. Coordinating day-of accessories {escort cards, table numbers, cocktail napkins, menus, programs, etc} are some of the details we’ll create that make your event special and unique.

As always, quintessential customer service is a priority. Taking care of your details and particulars is what we do best. We promise to create the perfect invitation that reflects you and your vision of your special day.
